Look Out for Pirates! (by Iris Vinton)

Look Out For Pirates! - Iris Vinton

What a surprising little action-adventure gem this was!  It has everything!  A treasure chest filled with gold, dastardly pirates, storms at sea and shipwrecks.  It has a deserted island, deep sea diving (in an awesome Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea type diving helmet), and dangerous encounters with sharks.  The book boasts a heroic captain and his able crew that are more than a match for the pirates, and the end result was a niece and nephew (and old auntie) who were delighted with this salty and adventurous easy reader!
